Operation Kimberley Miinimbi state that this statement to be completely false by Woodside about James Price Point.

'Woodside, the largest operator of oil and gas production in Australia, refers to what they say is “the most significant humpback whale study ever undertaken in Western Australia.”

This “study” claims that, “off James Price Point, the bulk of the migration occurs in waters approximately 30 km from the mainland, with less than five per cent of humpback whales travelling within eight km of the coast”.

'As the Steve Irwin sailed from Broome to James Price Point during Operation Kimberley Miinimbi, up to 108 whales were counted each day in the Walmadan area off James Price Point, all well within eight kilometres of the coast An average of fifteen percent of those sightings were of mother and calf pairs.
